Care Fair Tempe
Sometimes we are those who need some extra help, sometimes we are helping others and often we do both.
Care Fair Tempe 2018
Thank you to all who came out to our first Care Fair Tempe in 2018. Over 50 local nonprofits and service providers were in attendance to provide information about their organization and the services they offer Tempe residents. Over 250 community members attended the Care Fair, seeking information to help them or someone they know or obtaining information on volunteer opportunities and simple ways they can help their community by taking a tag from our event Giving Trees on small items our local nonprofits need.
Great music was provided courtesy of Mary Hoffman Music, Ioannis Goudelis, and April Anne Music with exceptional sound management by Dan Miller, of the Tempe History Museum. Local food vendors, a kids fun zone and free giveaways added to the festive fair setting. The community was connected with a low-cost produce resource, Borderlands – Produce on Wheels With Out Waste and ASU School of Sustainability – who partnered with us to offer attendees up to 60 lbs. of produce for just $10. POWWOW is a resource available in Tempe and through the Valley on various weekends, September-May.
Many Thanks to Our Sponsors!
We are thankful to the City of Tempe’s Human Services Department and Neighborhood Services for their partnership in helping us launch this great resource for our community. It takes a community. And we are so grateful for our amazing sponsors who helped us connect community with the resources they need.
